Ian Yves Ancheta (SE) is a maker and performer. His first encounter with dance was with New School Hip hop and this led to his great interest in musicality and fragmented movement qualities.
Ian graduated in 2019 from ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, Arnhem with a Bachelor of Dance degree. As a maker, Ian creates from a place of humor and playfulness. His explorations try to find the moments in which you see what was hidden, when simple suddenly is complex and insignificance becomes meaningful.
In the season of 2019/2020, Ian was seen in the works of Conny Janssen, Ingrid Berger Myhre, and Davide Bellotta. He also created his own works Once, Two times (2019) as part of the “One night’s dance” at Dansateliers, and On steady ground (2020) as part of “Dans in Ontwikkeling” by Liat Magnezy. His collaboration with Dansateliers brought him to create his new solo Titta på mina tuttar (2021) and together with Conny Janssen Danst a new work will be developed under the umbrella of Danslokaal 9 (2021).
In the upcoming season of 21/22, Ian will be working for the Norweigan dance company Nagelhus Schia Productions.
